Extra Credit opportunity!  Watch We Shall Remain: Trail of Tears on KCPT 19.1 Monday, November 1 or online and answer the following questions:

  1. Whose side did many Indian tribes take in the American Revolution? How did Thomas Jefferson’s view of Native peoples change following those events? Examine the Cherokee response in 1776 to American independence. How did this determine the Cherokee nation’s direction in the 1800s?
  2. During the War of 1812, General Andrew Jackson led an army of Tennessee militia and Native American allies (including 500 Cherokee) at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814 to fight Red Stick Creeks, followers of Tecumseh’s call for unity. What were the divisions among the Creek that led to the Creek Civil Wars? What was the outcome of the Battle of Horseshoe Bend? What were the terms of the Treaty of Fort Jackson? What did Jackson’s popularity following this war reveal about the attitude of white settlers toward Native peoples at this time?
  3. What is the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution? How did trade and the need for more land cause regional differences toward states rights, and how did this affect Native peoples? Who had jurisdiction over them? What were the pros and cons of states’ rights versus federalism?
  4. As treaty commissioner in 1814, Andrew Jackson played a key role in the use of “civilizing” treaties that introduced competition and division among Indian tribes. How did he implement this policy?
  5. Between 1800 and 1820 Americans moved west in enormous numbers. What new states came into existence during this time? How did the population change? What tensions did this cause between settlers and Native peoples?
  6. As trade expanded into the new states, a spirit of nationalism pervaded American politics. How did Andrew Jackson use U.S. government policy toward Native peoples to force the ceding of Florida from the Spanish in 1819? What was the Monroe Doctrine of the 1820s and how did it effect the lands of Native peoples?
  7. Why did Andrew Jackson’s presidential victory in the election of 1828 usher in the “era of the common man”? What political divisions existed in the U.S. at this time? How did geographical regions differ? How did the Jackson presidency transform American politics?
  8. Before the American Revolution, Thomas Jefferson had believed that Native people were capable of integration into the American system if they adopted white culture. Several decades later, however, Andrew Jackson leaned towards removal of Indian peoples. What forces caused a shift in attitude and federal government policy toward the Native Americans? What role did the invention of the cotton gin play?
